Lakawon Island Resort (Photo source  Resort’s FB Page)



Another treasure in Negros Occidental which is now frequented by tourists is the Lakawon Island Resort.

The Island is a 15-hectare banana-shaped island about 3 km off Cadiz City. The island is so popular among Pinoys outside the province may be because of its new development.

Lakawon has a gorgeous white beach consisting of coarse corals. The lovely beach is dotted with coconut trees.

Lakawon Island Resort is far different from what it used to be. There were only a few cottages then, and no aircon cottages. But today there are already rooms that are air-conditioned with more amenities of course. But I must say, Lakawon Island Resort needs to add more features and facilities to make their guests happier.

There were not many activities to do on the island except swimming and some related water activities like boating, snorkeling, and jet skiing. There were not many recreational facilities as well. The island resort is great for unwinding and relaxation.

For those who have known Lakawon in the past, this resort used to be the destination of people who don’t have the budget to go to Boracay. However, the resort underwent some development and I should say their prices go with it as well.

Please remember, you will be charged with a corkage for any food and drinks that you will be bringing to the Island – including bottled water. For more information about their prices, please refer to their published tariff below.

How to Get to Lakawon Island Resort

The access to the island is via Barangay Cadiz Viejo. A motorboat owned by the resort usually takes visitors to the island. The ride is about 30 minutes.

From Bacolod City, travel by private car will take just over an hour. There are also buses plying the Northern Negros which stops at Cadiz Viejo.
